BorderSky brings another dimension to borderland by letting borderlings enter the realm of the sky. Tandem paragliding flights, newbe paragliding workshops, and mini joy-rides for kids are on the menu, provided by instructors and co-created with you!
Did you ever wish to get just a little bit higher? Like ‘sky high’ maybe?
While other mortals dwell in the x-y-plane, chasing altitude-less highs, BorderSky will let a lucky few Borderlings experience another dimension - The Z dimension - and fully traverse the border between land and sky – opening up the great vastness of open space!
Paragliding workshops, tandem paragliding flights and joy-rides for kids are some of the amazing gifts that we want to bring you!
BorderSky will give Borderlings the chance to tour the land from above, flying with or without a pilot using a paraglider. I dream of creating several routes in this experience:
> Learn to fly! Get a basic and safe introduction to paragliding and get to do you first mini-takeoff on your own. Time: 1h, Requirements: Physically ok fit, no severe injuries, no severe intoxication
> Kids in the air! For all younger borderlings, there will be an early morning session where everyone can get a mini-flight. Time: 2h, Flight time: 30sec, Requirements: min 130cm, in company with grown-up
> Tandem soaring! Get to experience the cooling breeze at an altitude, with a paragliding tandem flight with a pilot (that’s me!). Emphasizing the mindfulness available when hanging up in the air in some plastic fabric. Hopefully (weather dependent) we can get enough air time to land out on the playa. Subject to lottery or reward for some epic contribution. Time: 1h, Flight time: 1min to 30min, Requirements: Physically ok fit, no severe injuries, no severe intoxication
Grow some wings and get yourself some air time!
I've been paragliding for little over a year and have taught some friends how to fly. Want to bring this to Borderland to give people a new type of experience
No significant waste generated. Signs and equipment will be trasported home. We will moop-check passengers so no moop is droped from above.
|Boots to borrow (borderlings often lack good shoes with is a safety issue)||500|
|Helmets, extra in smaller size, and for kids||500|
|Another paraglider + harness (optional)||9000|
|Tandem paraglider + tandem harness (optional or partial)||12000|
|Signs to the flight zone: Wood and paint||400|
|Fabric for decoration||400|
Yes! BorderSky needs more souls to help me make this happen! Send a message if you want to contribute! Especially anyone who has any experience with flying anything are most welcome to join!
Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
